Video and History of the Old North Church in Boston
Recently I published one of "Mayflower Who's Who" series on Harvey Hunter Pratt whose descends from Captain John Pulling, who (with the help of Robert Newman) hung the light for Paul Revere in the belfry of the Old North Church at the time Revere took his memorable ride in April of 1775.
One if by land, two if by sea. It was this signal in the steeple of the Old North Church that would ignite the fire that would become the American Revolution. We're continuing our trip through Boston with a visit to the Old North Church (www.oldnorth.com) where Paul Revere arranged to have a signal that would go out to the surrounding area that trouble from the British regulars was on the way. But there's more to this place than Paul Revere and the signal lanterns so we're diving in to explore this place and it's history from the crypt to the steeple. This episode was produced in partnership with The Gettysburg Museum of History.
